About the Music

A Swedish Melody, Haunting and Sublime, is based on the folksong Ack, Värmeland, du sköna. The first line of the lyrics can be translated as, "Oh Värmeland, You Fair and Lovely Place". Värmeland is a province in the west central part of Sweden that shares a border with Norway. The lyrics of the song speak of the beauty of the landscape and the wonderful nature of the people that live there. Although the folksong is never presented without some alterations, an attempt is made to capture the attractiveness of the melody and at least some of the sentiments expressed in the lyrics. The piece is written with the most important melodies appearing in many different combinations of instruments. This allows everyone in the band to have a part that is important. It not only adds artistic variety, but also makes the music more fun to rehearse and perform. The genesis of this piece was inspired by Gary Garner, a very successful band director at West Texas A&M University for many years and who, even though retired, is still an active conductor and clinician. He expressed a need in the band literature for pieces with artistic value that are appropriate for intensive rehearsal and public performance, are easy enough for many bands to play, and give the ensemble a chance to work on intonation, balance, and phrasing. This requires a piece with changing scoring textures. A Swedish Melody was written in an attempt to help fill this need. To play it well, each section of the band will have to carefully tune, balance, and phrase with a variety of other sections in textures that are sometimes thick and sometimes thin.

About the Composer

Nelson received a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education from the University of Texas at El Paso and Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees in Music Composition from The University of Texas at Austin.

He is now a Professor Emeritus of Music Theory and Composition at West Texas A & M University in Canyon, Texas where he taught and composed for thirty-six years. He has composed music for large and small instrumental and vocal ensembles and solos for various wind instruments and voice. He has also published compositions for music education purposes.

Credo, Op. 153 (Grade 3)S945CB HL172748

Credo is an ideal piece for young bands, particularly those with a large percussion section. It is very carefully scored and cross-cued, so that almost any size band can perform it. Composed in sonatina form, it is highly energetic and tuneful, and the bass instruments have lots of fun, easy things to play. Like Prairie Winds Festival, Credo is very safely scored, with Piccolo, 2nd Oboe, 2nd Bassoon, Contra-Alto Clarinet, 3rd Trombone and Double Bass parts optional. Ranges are very reasonable; the only sixteenth notes in the piece are in the snare drum.

NISHIMURA, YUKIKO

Star Ship (Grade 3)S830 HL3778655

Of this work, composer Yukiko Nishimura writes, "In Japan there is an old tale which has been told since before time began. Two of the most beautiful stars in the night sky are Altair, representing Man and Vega, representing Woman. These two lovers can meet each other only one time each year, on the night of July 7th. Living on opposite sides of the Milky Way, they have to ride a ship to meet each other on that night. If it rains, they cannot see each other because the river of light in the sky is swollen. The name of the star ship that Altair and Vega ride is called 'Hoshi no Fune'. I wanted to express in music the pain of these separated lovers."
